To be clear, I am not putting down the Shinko tire. Many people like them a lot and have very good luck with them for many safe miles.
That said, any tire (no matter the price) that shows failures of this type will not be high on my list of choices. I like to hustle my bike and need to have a level of comfort regarding the small patches of rubber that keep me from crashing. Just one man's opinion.
There are 10 types of people, those who know binary and those who don't.
What I ride now:
2013 Honda GoldWing (The Lady)
2014 V-strom 650 (The Mistress)
Previously: 07 Ultra Classic, 95 Softail, 80 gs450l
